National Pizza Day is observed annually on February 9.  Whether it is thin crust, Chicago-style, deep dish or anything in between, pizza is an American favorite. Although the first pizzeria opened up in Naples, Italy in 1739, over three billion pizzas are served annually in this country and that does not include the one billion frozen pizzas.

So what will you do to celebrate? There are plenty of choices and we have put a list together to make it easier for you to decide.
